King Harold Academy. Where Teachers love Teaching.
We love teaching. Simple. We love it when students "get it". When they have that penny drop moment after struggling and thinking hard. We love class discussions, we love silent contemplation and study, we also love students working together.
At King Harold Academy we love developing our teaching. This is why we send students home early on a Tuesday and spend two hours each week talking, collaborating and planning our teaching, and we all leave before 5pm. We understand that great teaching is the reason why students at King Harold are great learners. Nothing trumps great pedagogy.
We are seeking a Deputy Head of Department in English who first and foremost loves teaching English. Someone who wishes to work collaboratively to support the development of five other amazing English teachers and their teaching. This role would suit an existing middle leader or someone who is looking for a step into leadership.
